WELD-ON NECK RAKE FROM HAWG HALTERS INC
THE RIGHT WAY TO RAKE A BAGGER NECK
Hawg Halters Inc ain't just a high style high performance brake caliper and rotor company. Hawg Halters Inc still sells all the stuff they are famous for, and now offers a weld-on neck rake kit that can turn a ordinary profile Bagger motorcycle into a custom motorcycle profile Bagger. Watch for the complete story with revealing photographs in an upcoming issue of Paisano Publications Road Iron Magazine. Cutting the neck assembly off of a late model $20,000.00 Harley-Davidson motorcycle is not for the faint of heart, especially if you're the owner. But if you're wanting a custom neck rake angle to accommodate the use of a twenty three inch custom wheel from Renegade or other wheel company, ya gotta have rake above and beyond the factory spec. With this exquisitely engineered kit the "trail" number stays close to five, which gives best overall handling at both high and low speeds. At this time two kits are available; one for the use of a twenty three inch wheel, and another for the use of a twenty six inch front wheel. Kits can be had for either Bat-Wing or Road Glide applications. A few photos are displayed here to give you an idea of the end result. When this particular bike is completed you will see it here on this blog.
